The K Sound was Michael Portnoy’s first performance at The Kitchen in 2006. It incorporated much of his experience with stand-up comedy blended together with dance and theater. The music score united jokes with the dance, song, text, lighting, and set, utilizing idiosyncratic timing to emphasize the feeling of unpredictability in the choreography.
